Hair Clips

I’m trying to find something quick (and reasonably inexpensive) to make. Miss A is having a party soon and I want to put something that is not cheap plastic rubbish in her party bags. It is also a ‘fete year’ at school, so something quick and cheap to make would be good for the craft stall.

These butterfly hair clips are felt covers for normal snap clips (the kind you use for holding quilt bindings in place). The design is from here.

A few tips – the colour of the bobbin thread does matter (despite instructions to the contrary), machine sew the butterfly to the clip cover (rather than hand sewing or gluing) and finally use a tear-away or wash-away stabiliser (I used calico and it means there are little cotton bits sticking out of the edges).
